Bias Tires vs. Radial Tires

Bias vs. radial tire graphic

Bias ply tires are designed for off-road or agricultural applications. They are built with thick, durable nylon cords that are positioned at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the direction of travel. The layers alternate in a crisscross pattern, making the sidewalls stiffer so that the entire tire is able to flex easily. As a result, the tire provides a smooth ride and improved handling when trailering on uneven surfaces.

Bought these tires for an old 4x8 utility trailer I'm rebuilding. Shipped quick and were packaged very well. Mounted these tires by hand. Because they are bias ply and quite narrow (made for a 4" wide wheel) they were a bit tricky to seat the bead. No fault of the tire. My wheels are are a bit wider, around 4.5"-5" wide. These tires ride well even without being balanced. They were an inexpensive option for my trailer that only sees light duty and short distance use. Cheaper and better quality than I could find locally. 140064

I shopped and found this was the best delivered price for tires of the correct load range. I bought five of them. A local retailer wanted more than TWICE the price, plus tax. The free shipping made a big difference. I felt the shipping was fast. I have not put them on the trailers yet, but I previously had the Load Star brand with good results. The tread seems shallow but I'm not likely to wear them out before they need to be replaced due to old age, as was the case with their predecessors. What I didn't like was the tires were shipped loosely in a large box, which was held together with large, long, sharp copper staples, which protruded inside the box. I thought the staples created a great risk of puncturing the tires during shipping. It doesn't seem like a good idea, nor did it work very well, as the box was falling apart when it arrived. Hopefully we'll find no punctures when I put them on the trailers. 572822

product: Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80-12 - Load Range C tires were a little wonky - somewhat twisted out of shape. I was able to mount them but had to bring to a garage so that they could seat the beads. they used a bead seater. once seated, I was happy. they were pretty cheap, so not so bad. 765151

I got this tire for my utility trailer because my old ones dry rotted out and finally started leaking after 28 years. I first replaced the spare and then the two on the trailer. These Kenda tires came in holding good tire and bead shape, not twisted or mangled. I was pleased with that. The went on the rims really easy. I do it by hand using motorcycle tire irons. I also replaced the valve stems. I recommend these Kenda tires. 752755

As a matter of fact, I got Carol's email about the delivery which I didn't hear apparently, then went outside and there the package was! I got a kick out of that. As for the product, they look fine but I won't be using the trailer until the summer. Thanks for being there! 747646

Ask the Experts about this Kenda Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Recommended Air Compressor for a Small 90 Psi Trailer Tire
    The best portable air compressor we have to fill a small trailer tire like part # AM10062 to 90 psi is the Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor part # BDW41003. This compressor is actually rated to 150 psi and attaches to the battery via alligator clamps. The reason you will want at least a 150 psi compressor is because it would take ages to fill the tire to 90 psi with a 100 psi air compressor which is the next most common size. The alligator clamps will also allow the compressor to run...

  • Tire Pressure in Kenda Trailer Tires Size 4.80-12
    The Kenda 4.80-12 Load Range C tires, part # AM10062, should always be inflated to 90 psi when they're cold. Running them at a lower psi might make the ride less stiff but it also will compromise the integrity of the tire. Trailer tires are designed to always be run at maximum psi and when they aren't it causes varying stress on them, which can cause heat build up and eventually failure. If nothing else it will cause uneven treadwear and decrease the tire's lifespan. Instead of decreasing...

  • Solution for Rough Ride with 12" Tires on Light Utility Trailer
    Based on the max 90 psi that you mentioned I believe your trailer is equipped with 4.80-12 sized tires, such as the Kenda K353 # AM10062. Most trailer tire manufacturers recommend that their tires always be inflated to their listed maximum psi to ensure sufficient load support, and just about any trailer tire is going to have higher psi levels like this. There isn't a trailer tire out there, even smaller units, that would list a lower max psi of around 35 like what you would find on...

  • Does a 4.80-12 Trailer Tire use a 12 Inch Wheel
    Yes, a 4.80-12 trailer tire uses a 12 inch diameter wheel that is 4 inches wide. The 4.80 spec is the width of the tire. I have attached a link to all of our 12 inch x 4 inch trailer wheels for you to check out. They come with either a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern or a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Make sure you choose a wheel with the same bolt pattern as your trailer hub or as your previous wheels. I have also attached a help article on how to determine your bolt pattern for you to check out.

  • Availability of Replacement Radial 5.30x12 Tire for Boat Trailer
    Kenda tires are made in Taiwan or mainland China, as are most trailer tires these days. We do not offer the 5.30x12 tire in radial, and in my research, I was unable to find that tire size available in a radial. This being said, we offer a ST145/R12 radial tire that is a close size match for a 5.30x12 tire. The tire is compatible with a 12x4 rim and would measure about 21 inches in diameter with a section width of about 5.7 inches. They will be about the same width as a 5.30x12 tire,...

  • Replacement Special Trailer Tires to Replace Radials on Boat Trailer
    Trailer tires rarely last much longer than about 6 years and that is the oldest we recommend a tire be before it is replaced. If you got 18 years of service from a set of car tires (!!!) you got lucky, but it surely is time for new ones, and they need to be special trailer tires. The number of plies in a tire does not matter like it used to. Years back, the ply rating pretty much told you the whole story of a tire's capabilities, but with modern special trailer tires (the only type you...

  • Availability of a Size 4.80-12 Tire with a Speed Rating Higher than 65 MPH
    Typically special trailer tires are usually rated to operate at a maximum speed of 65 mph and if you exceed 65 mph, heat could build up in the tire and cause it to break down and fail. The tire I recommend for your 4.80-12 size is the Kenda # AM10062 because it was designed for excellent handling at high speeds even though the speed rating is 65 mph. The load rating is 990 pounds at 90 psi. I included a couple informative articles for you too.

Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire for best performance and longest life. I have included a link to our tire FAQ article for you.

  • What Does Trailer Tire Ply Rating Mean
    When a tire is given a 'ply rating', it doesn't necessarily indicate the number of layers of material the tire is constructed of. As the need for greater fuel economy and the cost of materials rises, the tire manufacturers have gone to using lighter but stronger materials like Kevlar that provide the same strength that would have took several layers of materials years ago. Fewer layers also means less heat build-up, which is essential for longer tire life. All that really matters is...

  • Do Bias Ply Trailer Wheel/Tires Need to be Balanced more than Radials
    Actually trailer tires don't normally get balanced so typically it's not an issue but in general radial tires are better overall so if you were considering a radial I would recommend that highly. Trailer tires and wheels are marked where the heavy and light points are so what the people who mount them will do is line those up properly and you get a balanced enough setup. In general people who go ahead and balance trailer tires don't notice a difference. The main difference between a...

  • Recommended Tires For Malone Microsport With Two Fishing Kayaks
    Trailer tires should always be inflated to their max capacity. This helps with load carrying capability but also for heat dissipation and wear. With your tires at 60 lbs, you will have your tires getting too hot and wear too fast as well as decreased traction even with more road contact. My recommendation is to go back to your 4.8-12 tires because you don't need the additional width. The load range isn't the issue, but you won't have any issue with that either for this application....

  • What is the Air Pressure Rating for a 4.80-12 Load Range C Trailer Tire
    Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. For a 4.80-12 load range C such as # AM10062, it should be inflated to 90 psi. The reason you inflate trailer tires to the maximum psi is because trailer tires are constructed with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical load compared to passenger vehicle tires. If under inflated the thicker sidewall will lead to excessive heat build up and tire failure. I have included a link to our help article...

  • Can psi of 4.80-12 C Load Range Tire be Under what is on the Sidewall for Lighter Loads
    You always want to have your trailer tires inflated to the max psi rating on their sidewall. If the max rating on the sidewall of your 4.80-12 is a C being 992 lbs at 88 psi, similar to the 990 lbs at 90 psi of the Kenda # AM10062, then you want to keep it filled to 88 psi.

    If you find yourself in an emergency situation, you could temporarily use a lower rated tire as a spare until you can get the damaged tire repaired or replaced, but generally speaking you wouldn't want to mix tires with different load ratings even if both tires being used have a load rating less than the weight of the trailer. I'd recommend running both tires of the same load rating, the price differential between a load rating B tire like # AM10060 and a load range C like the # AM10062...

  • Motorcycle Trailer Tire Air Pressure Required
    If your motorcycle trailer has ST (special trailer) tires, then they are made to be run at the max psi. If they do not have this ST distinction, then you most likely can run them at a slightly lower tire pressure. I recommend confirming with the manufacturer of your tires as we don't carry any tires that size. I wouldn't go with anyone else's advice as it could be a safety issue for you and/or others.

  • Recommended Pressure to Inflate Trailer Tires for Trip
    Special trailer tires, like the existing Carlisle tires on your trailer, should always be inflated to their maximum air pressure. The maximum psi of 90 that you mentioned should always be maintained, regardless of the load on your trailer or the distance that you will be traveling. This will ensure that the tires can hold its listed load capacity while performing at their best. If a trailer tire is inflated to a lower air pressure than the maximum, the amount of weight the tire can...

  • Changing Out a 4.80/4.00-8 Tire to a 4.80/ 4.00-12 Tire
    It is recommended that you do not want to see any less than 4-1/2" of clearance between the top of the tire and the underside of the fender. A 4.80/4.00-8 tire is usually about 16 inches in diameter when fully inflated. A 4.80/ 4.00-12 tire can be 20" in diameter. So as long as you will have at least 4-1/2" of clearance from the tire to the fender, you will be able to change out your tire to a 4.80/ 4.00-12 size. Keep in mind, if you are wanting a larger 20" 4.80/ 4.00-12 tire, you...

  • Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10068 Recommendation
    As far as fitting your rim that is 4-1/2 inches, using a 5.30-12 size tire would be closer to what is recommended for your rim that the 4.80-12 that you are currently using. The 5.30-12 is designed for 4-1/4 inch wheels, whereas the 4.80-12 is intended for 4 inch wide wheels. So as far as your wheel goes a 5.30-12 would be better for you.

To be able to carry more weight you would have to replace the axle and use wheels and tires rated the same as the new axle.

    Wear on the outside of a trailer tire is an indication that the weight on the trailer is not significant enough to straighten out the axle when under load.

This is likely what is going on. The other possibility is that there is something wrong or worn out with the suspension. Check the suspension for worn...
